Howdy! I'm Tom "the Furniture Guy." I build barnwood signs and flags out of wood that I salvage from barns all across middle Tennessee. Below are just a few of the barns that I have recently taken down, or mother nature has taken down for me.

Brushy, Tennessee
The Cat Named Tornado Red and His Barn
My friend Jim had a cat named Red who lived in a comfortable old barn on a hill in a small town, until one February night about four years ago when a tornado came through and blew the barn apart. Miraculously Red survived and after that Jim and I always called him Tornado Red. I helped Jim take down the barn the rest of the way and Tornado Red lived a happy and comfortable life in the new barn that Jim built him. I really liked Tornado Red because every time I would go visit Jim, he would run up, let me pick him up and just purr. I think of him often when I am building furniture and signs from his old barn.

Primm Springs, Tenn.
Family Barn In Primm Springs
This barn was used for years and years by a family in Primm Springs Tennessee. Mother Nature completely flattened the entire structure when she sent a tornado over the hill and down into the hollow where this barn stood for nearly a hundred years. They contacted me and on my first day of salvaging, I was standing on the roof of their barn which was now only three feet off the ground. After several days, I was able to salvage some great boards for furniture and signs. See barnwood signs using wood from this barn

Sawdust, Tennessee
Mystery Barn in Sawdust
I wish I knew more about this barn. It was salvaged by a friend and customer of mine who also collects barnwood. He was generous and let me get several boards and a few barn doors. See barnwood signs using wood from this barn

Pleasantville, Tenn.
Barnwood Building in Pleasantville
A gentleman contacted me and asked if I would help him take down part of his barnwood building. I drove out to Pleasantville, Tennessee and really liked what I saw when I pulled up. There were three barnwood doors that he wanted me to remove and more wood on the sides. After a few days of work I was able to get enough barnwood to build some barnwood trunks and also some signs.
